Another fun romp in the steampunk universe of Agatha Heterodyne. Not to disparage Phil Foglio's artwork, but I'm just not a visually oriented person and don't find graphically presented stories as satisfying as text or audio. But it would be a shame to have missed these characters and tales. So I am deeply grateful to the Foglios for text-novelizing their web comic/graphic novels. And the audiobook is a wonderfully enjoyable job by reader Angela Dawe.

I've been reading Girl Genius for about ten years and, I have to say, it only gets better. Not only is the gaslamp fantasy world consistently engaging and surprising, but the story as it stands in November 2020 is expansively empathetic. It interrogates the intersection between being in a powerful ingroup (here represented as humans) and being worthy of empathy by refusing to explicitly classify clanks, constructs, and other spark-created beings’ level of earned empathy except for through Agatha’s deconstruction of other sparks’ anti-construct prejudices. It's hilarious and the art is beautiful and Zeetha and Krosp always leave me smiling.… (more)

Another great addition to the the Girl Genius saga. Some interesting things were revealed and a longstanding problem was finally solved. Now on to more hijinks.

I have been reading this web comic for over a decade. I would own every hard cover version if postage was not prohibitive. It has plenty to recommend it; Genius girls, Machiavellian baddies, voluptuous goddesses, beautiful art work, steam punk, cities with personalities, sea monsters, dragons, trains, libraries, robots, parasites, deadly challenges, and Jaegers.
I cannot get enough of the crazy, loyal, Jaeger's.
When I want to spend some pure 'me time' indulgence, this is my choice.
